Marcos Andres Jimenez, 17, was arrested for capital murder on Dec. 21. A couple weeks earlier, the high school senior convinced “witnesses” to take him “to a medical facility to treat a deep laceration to his finger,” according to police reports. Initially, Jimenez said the injury was from a fence. He later admitted to killing a man.

The witnesses did not take Jimenez’s confession seriously until Dec. 18 when he asked how long a person could live after being stabbed in the neck. He proceeded to show “one of the witnesses a bag that contained prescription medication.” That individual snapped a surreptitious picture with a cellphone and drove, with the other witnesses, to the address printed on the medicine bottles.

Inside the home, located in the 9900 block of Hurley Way, they discovered a puddle of blood and a man who appeared to have been stabbed to death. They immediately called 911. The victim’s identity has not been released, as of press time.
